ESPN.com - Page2 - Mad cows and sick sports
"...The human animal needs a Good Reason to get out of bed on a wretched
morning in February. Nothing is moving out there on the icy streets except
drunk drivers, desperate criminals & people who don't have the imagination
to call in sick for work. Hell, there are plenty of good reasons to wake up
sick this time of year: The flu, Ague Fever, shin splints, Chicken pox,
projectile-vomiting, Rickets -- even Black Hairy Tongue Disease, which is
extremely contagious.
It is not enough to be merely in real pain or suffering from a Nervous
Breakdown. That is not Contagious, and Contagious is what you need. It
has to be something that even the Boss might catch & die from. Mad Cow
Disease is big in the news right now, and people are deathly afraid of it. I
have seen people go rigid with Fear at the sight of a brain damaged cow
with wild eyes staggering crazily around in circles with its legs caving in
and its spine seizing up & its hooves lashing out in the air..."
Hunter S. Thompson dishes out this sort of abuse regularly from espn.com

National Security Archive/The Nixon-Presley Meeting

"Of all the requests made each year to the National Archives for
reproductions of photographs and documents, one item has
been requested more than any other. That item, more requested
than the Bill of Rights or even the Constitution of the United
States, is the photograph of Elvis Presley and Richard M. Nixon
shaking hands on the occasion of Presley's visit to the White
House...
On December 21, 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President
Richard M. Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C. The
meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page
letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that
he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of
Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. The events leading up to and
after the meeting are detailed in the documentation and
photographs included here, which include Presley's handwritten
letter, memoranda from Nixon staff and aides, and the
thank-you note from Nixon for the gifts
(including a Colt 45 pistol and family photos)
that Presley brought with him to the Oval Office...."

On Ronald Reagan's 90th birthday, (today) NPR featured an old
story that Ron was fond of telling back in his radio days: "It's a
little-known fact that during the war I was sent on a government
mission to contact one of our operatives in a small town just
outside of Dublin. His name was Murphy, and I was to meet him
in the local pub prepared with nothing other than the passphrase:
"It's been a lovely day, but not so lovely as the evening promises
to be". I arrived at the pub, and after waiting for a while asked the
bartender if Murphy might be around. "Well, there's quite a few
Murphys in this town, is it Murphy the Postman you'd like to see,
or Murphy the carpenter? They're both regulars and usually come
in for a pint about now." "No it's niether of them, I said. "Well it's
been a lovely day, but not so lovely as the evening promises to
be" "Ah, he said, so it's Murphy the SPY you were lookin' for.
I'll give him a call and he'll be right down.
